Yesterday I did my first vBrownBag Tech Talk at VMworld. I was a bit nervous for sure and ended up being a little bit short on content (I talk a bit fast when I get nervous). Anyway I think it still went OK and I enjoyed giving it a shot.
The talk was on using PowerCLI to manage SSH. Specifically about using PowerCLI to report on the status of the SSH Service on ESXi host (is it running, what is the policy set for), updating the policy (Start and Stop with Host, Manual, Automatic), stopping and starting the SSH on ESXi hosts, and configuring the firewall for the SSH service to limit access to the service.
The slide deck from the talk can be found here: vBrownBag-TechTalk-ManagingSSH
Here is a short recording from the talk:
I also talked a bit about a script I put together as an example to toggle (start or stop) the SSH service on all hosts in vCenter inventory.
This afternoon at 5:00 PM PDT I am giving another vBrownBag Tech Talk on Managing vCenter Roles and Permissions using PowerCLI. Stop by the hang space or watch the live stream here: http://professionalvmware.com/brownbags/vbrownbags-live/
